Joint caretaker player-boss Ben Judge was not happy with his team, despite Crawley's 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Tamworth on Saturday afternoon.
"It was the worst performance since David Woozley and I took over five weeks ago," Judge said after Scott Rendell's penalty separated the sides.
"A lot of the lads were tired, and I don't think having a two-week break since our last game did us any favours."
He added how Tamworth had their chances and could've taken the points.
He continued: "Tamworth must be very disappointed, as they had a lot of chances. But the result was the main thing for us."
